Barra and South Uist Community Events
Tobar an Dualchais held two community events between March and April: a concert in Barra organised in collaboration with Castlebay Community School, singer Claire Frances MacNeil, and Sabhal Mòr Ostaig’s music students and an event in South Uist in which a selection of recordings from the south end of the island were played. The events were funded by Creative Scotland through the Maoin nan Ealan Gàidhlig fund, which is supported by Fèisean nan Gàidheal.
The precious legacy of Barra’s Annie Johnston
Thanks to funding from the ‘Maoin nan Ealain Gàidhlig’ scheme, Tobar an Dualchais had the privilege of working with Barra singer Claire Frances MacNeil to tap into the rich store of songs from the island featured on our website and inspired by the likes of Annie Johnston.
